The station's General Manager Alan Burrows has paid tribute to Mal.

Great to see Mal go out on his own terms which doesn't happen much in today's world".

Concerns for Brian after John Laws reduces caller to tears

Friday 20 March, 2015
John Laws reduced an 80-year-old caller to tears on radio this morning after the elderly man called to talk about being sexually assaulted as a child.

It's not the first time the veteran jock has found himself in trouble when discussing sexual assault with callers, suggesting to a female listener in 2013, women who dress provocatively were “rape bait”.

The F-Bomb dropped once again on 2SM

Friday 06 March, 2015
You would think 2SM would know where their dump button was by now.
Just weeks after John Laws copped an expletive mouthful from a caller with a clear dislike for the veteran shock-jock, the F-Bomb has once again slipped through to the keeper.

Lawsie’s reaction?

“Ooh dear, dear, dear…it’s a long reach did we get it? I think we got it.” “Tell us (laughs), such a nice quietly spoken lady…out of the blue you get that”.

Oops Lawsie, delay not working

Thursday 05 February, 2015
John Laws copped an expletive mouthful from caller Lee this morning, who had a clear dislike for the veteran shock-jock.

Luckily radio stations know how to use their dump buttons right?

Wrong, for 2SM at least.

“Can you believe that? The language of that fellow. We dumped it thank God”, said Laws under the presumption that his producer had reacted quickly enough to the swearing.

'You are a nasty piece of work Norman'

Friday 29 August, 2014
"If you shut up for a minute... let me tell you, that is radio, we are a family," 2SM's John Laws told serial pest Norman, when he went two rounds on air with him this morning.

Amongst other insults, Norman told Lawsy "you've got no pull any more, if you want something done for you go to Hadley, don't go to John Laws."

After a couple of rounds with Laws, caller Barbara, one of Lawsy's 'colourful' listeners, also got on air to exchange a few harsh words with Norman.

Listen to the verbal boxing match below.
